Operation Moonlight Sonata: The German Raid on Coventry

By Allan W. Kurki | Go to book overview

Notes

CHAPTER 1
1.
Longmate, Air Raid: The Bombing of Coventry 1940. In my research I utilized Longmate's book extensively. Longmate did an excellent job of interviewing a large number of Coventry residents who went through the bombing raid that night. His detailed description of the specific damage caused by the raid is also particularly thorough and well documented.

CHAPTER 2
1.
The historical background material for this chapter came from numerous general reference sources. However, the two sources most widely used were: "City of Coventry Official Guide," and Taylor, ed., "Coventry: The Ancient City with a Modern Outlook." The Taylor booklet is in the Public Records Office (PRO) Kew, in file HO192/1164.
2.
Taylor, ed., "Directory of Coventry Manufacturers 1939-1940." In addition to the statistics contained in this directory, there are also excellent maps that show the locations of the various major manufacturing plants in the city. This directory is also contained in the PRO Kew files in file HO192/1164.
3.
Ibid. p. 109.
4.
These population statistics are found in PRO Kew file HO192/1167. It is interesting to note that following the raid the estimated population of Coventry by June 1941 had decreased to 187,600 individuals.
5.
These statistics come from file 512.675.2, "British Air Ministry: Coventry Raids," at the USAF Historical Research Center at Maxwell AFB.
6.
Taylor, ed., "Directory of Coventry Manufacturers 1939-1940" p. 109.
